Joker and Thief Restaurant Terrigal
While the name is a homage to Bob Dylan, our interior is Mad Men meets INXS – Mid Century Modern with a nod to Art Deco and a luxe Rock n Roll edge. Dusty pink walls with timber panelling contrast deep hues, velvet upholstery, brass details and marble tabletops. The Joker and Thief is pure escapism. Once you reach the top of the staircase, you will enter a world of unpretentious decadence.

Located on a prominent beachside strip, Balmy ocean breezes come through the windows as cocktails flow. Our venue transforms from a bright and airy lunch spot to a moody, plush night-time restaurant bar.

The Joker & Thief Story

The Joker and Thief started as an idea from locals who were always looking for somewhere in Terrigal that catered for the mature patron. Where you can go for a night out for great food and cocktails dressed up with the girls or a few casual beers with mates and everything in between including live music and TV screens.

After we realised it wasn’t just going to appear one day as we hoped. Several long nights later discussing all of this (generally after a few drinks) It went from an idea ….to a possibility…. to a reality pretty quickly. [read more..]
